true Idaho native, growing up on the family farm on Amity Road
in Nampa, and living in the area her entire life. Laura
met and married Frank "Tom" Dostal on December 4, 1930, in
Nampa. During her lifetime, she worked at many different
occupations, some of which were the Nampa State School and

never-ending concern for those around her, and for the sweet,
sweet smiles. Laura, we love you, love you, love you,
and will miss your sorely.
